M Crowd Alert: Lonyea Tackles the Baby Blue Smoky EyeMay 18, 2018
Presenting… a video by the M Crowd — the wildly talented group of makeup influencers who create exclusive content just for Makeup.com. Here, Lonyea shares how to rock a wearable glittery eye with a blinding highlight to match.
In case you missed it, makeup has started to take a natural, dewy turn. Instagram brows are giving way to a bushier look, and the term no-makeup makeup is buzzier than ever. Even so, we’re still suckers for a full face glam, and so is our insanely talented M Crowd babe, Lonyea. Watch her tackle a holographic, baby blue, glitter smoky eye in the tutorial ahead (now say that three times fast):
Step 1: Start by priming the eye using a concealer — we recommend a concealer pot or formula with a thicker consistency to really get the product to stick.
Step 2: Using the NYX Professional Makeup Matte Translucent Setting Powder, set your concealer to lock in your base.
Step 3: Take a warm brown eyeshadow shade, and blend it into your crease. This will be your transition color so it should be fairly neutral. Then, take a champagne-gold shade and place it underneath the brow bone to highlight.
Step 4: Next, take a medium-toned brown shade and apply to the outer corner of the eye and blend into the crease. Deepen the look by adding a deeper brown shade into the outer corner and blending inward toward the crease.
Step 5: Apply a pastel blue shadow to the center of the lid and bring it out halfway across the lid — we recommend the palest blue shade in the NYX Love You So Mochi Electric Pastels Palette for this look!
Step 7: To finish off the eye look, apply a winged liner and lashes to make your eyes really pop.
Step 8: For the face, prime with La Roche-Posay Anthelios Daily Primer. This is great for filling in your pores and getting a flawless base.
Step 9: Then apply Dermablend Flawless Creator and blend.
Step 10: Next, use Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer to highlight the high points of your face where light tends to hit your skin.
Step 11: Set your makeup using Dermablend Setting Powder, and use a deeper shade to contour your features.
Step 12: Warm up the skin using a berry-toned blush like Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Wine.
Step 13: To turn up the glow, apply L’Oréal Crushed Foil Highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones, forehead and cupid’s bow.
Step 14: Finally, apply a brown lip liner like NYX Matte Suede Lip Liner in Downtown Beauty and a matching brown gloss to finish of your look.This M Crowd influencer receives a commission for purchases made through links in this post.
